The MT8 features the a full carbon body, and carbon lay blade and clamp and plenty of other key features, which are listed below. The Carbotecture Brake - Stronger, Lighter, and Ingenious.
With the MT8 Magura presents the worldwide most clever disc brake ever with Carbotecture SL Master and Carbolay lever blade, manufactured in their innovative Carboflow process.
Based on the Magura Performance Factor the MT8 is the new benchmark on the disc brake market. Despite the awesome weight features the MT8 makes you forget the well-known problems of the ultra-lightweight competitors' products - thanks to Carbotecture SL.
Technical features: Open hydraulic disc brake system with a completely integrated reservoir with EBT technology for superfast and convenient bleeding. The dual piston fixed caliper with automatic pad wear adjustment in a smart One Piece Design for maximum stiffness. Pad wear thickness can be checked without removal of the pads.
The master is made out of our innovative Carbotecture SL with a incredible light and durable Carbolay lever blade. Featuring a cool look, distinctively enhanced durability and optimized friction performance for stunning brake power.
Available with 203, 180, 160 and 140mm diametre. Featherlight carbon 2-finger blade with integrated reach adjust. All fitting bolts made of aluminium.
Bicycle disc brakes consist of a metal disc attached to the wheel hub that rotates with the wheel. Brake calipers are attached to the frame or fork along with pads that squeeze together on the disc. The way it is attached to the bike will be either by IS (International Standard) which has two holes facing the disc or Post Mount, which has threads going into the fork. Disc brakes have been successfully used on motorbikes for decades, and are the principal choice there. The primary benefit of disc brakes is that they perform equally well in all conditions including water, mud and snow. This is due to their position closer to the hub and away from the ground and possible contaminants like water, which can coat and freeze on the rim in colder temperatures. The pads are usually made from metal sinters or an organic compound instead of rubber. Water acts as a lubricant to rubber but not metal, therefore disc brakes maintain their stopping power in wet conditions. They also avoid the problem that rim brakes have of wearing out the wheel rims, especially in muddy conditions, as well as the requirement that the rim be straight. Disc brakes offer improved modulation of braking power and generally require less finger effort to achieve the same braking power. The advantages of discs make them well-suited to steep, extended downhills through wet and muddy off-road terrain, common in freeride bicycle riding.
Established in 1893. Magura have lead the way in hydraulic disc brake technology. They were the first company to produce a hydraulic rim brake with the HS33 and the first company to use a cast single piece caliper, the Gustav M which is now 10 years old and has been used by legends such as Tomac, Palmer and the modern brakes are being used by the likes of Liam Killeen and Tyler "Super T" Klassen. For 2007 Magura have introduced a completely new range of forks featuring a dual arch and the Maxle on their freeride fork.
